A few of my favorite things

In the words of my boss, "The past week or two have been a little rough. Lots of projects at work. The sun going down early, and it getting colder. The economy. War. Blah, blah, blah..."

Yes. I agree. So following in Stephen's footsteps and the never-ending quest to try to bring joy into the lives of those around me, I bring you these things that make me happy and maybe they'll make you happy, too. Let's all use the weekend to do at least one thing that makes us happy.
  1. Driving through downtown OKC at night listening to NPR jazz
  2. Skinny lattes from Starbucks
  3. Clear skies
  4. Broccoli and cheese soup
  5. Taking naps while afternoon sun streams in my bedroom windows
  6. Running through my neighborhood in autumn
  7. Giving a running commentary throughout movies (maybe this doesn't make my friends so happy)
  8. Quiet time in the morning and worship music on the way to work
  9. Funny links from my coworkers to keep me laughing during the day
  10. Whole grain bagels with strawberry cream cheese
  11. Sunsets that change the sky into about 7 different colors at once
  12. Postsecret
  13. Old couples in love
  14. Integris hospital commercials
  15. Lighting good smelling candles
  16. Taking pictures of plants up close like the one above (in Marie Antoinette's garden at Versailles)

I looked at that Postsecret website...didn't really make me happy. It was sort of depressing...

But most of the other things on your list I agree with! It is nice to remember the little things that make us happy.
